This is a simple screen the screener action baseline out-of-bounds play from Coach Hurley.1 starts with the ball out of bounds and the rest of the team is in a box formation (4 and 5 on the blocks and 2 and 3 on the elbows). The play begins with 4 cutting diagonal across and up the lane to set a back screen for 2. 2 makes a hard cut to the rim looking to pull x4 over to help protect the basket. If x4 doesn’t help and x2 gets caught on the screen, 1 makes the simple pass to 2 for a layup. If x4 does help, 5 screens for 4 who cuts out to the wing or short corner for a shot. In the video, 5 forces x4 to cut all the way around him at the 3-point line and x5 stays in the lane leaving 4 wide open in the corner.
